I am thankful for Jonathan's whistling. The man can't walk without whistling.
From the moment he wakes up he sings. His heart and spirit are always happy. When he is in the shower he sings even louder. May it be a reminder to my spirit to be joyful.
From the moment Jonathan wakes up he asks me questions. I get up at 5-5:30 every morning so I can have my quiet time, drink my coffee and wake my soul before my family gets up. I have to. I like quiet mornings. Jonathan wakes up at 100%. So in between whistling and singing, he asks me questions. What did you dream about? Where is my wallet? How do you feel about beards? Do you think I could fly a helicopter?
4. King Size Bed
When we first got married we slept in a queen size bed and then we upgraded to a king size bed. We went from sleeping all over each other to sleeping on opposite sides of the world. Since Jonathan has been home it's gotten smaller. I've been sleeping in the middle (side thought: the middle of the bed is awesome, it is fresh and new and doesn't have a grove.) of the bed just to be closer to him. But we still have room for babies to get in the bed when they need to be comforted. (Insert Henry last night because he needed his mama-and his trains-and some milk- and his head rubbed-and a piss (a piss is a kiss- I love, love, love when Henry walks up and says Mama, I need to piss you!) all at 2 in the morning)
5. Black Socks
Only those closest to me will understand just how grateful my heart is about this. Jonathan leaves his socks on the floor all the time. You can tell what he has been doing by the trail of the socks. Sometimes I will find them on the couch. Sometimes they will be on the floor. Sometimes they will be on the night stand. Sometimes they will be on the kitchen counter. Sometimes I will find them outside. I've found them in the car, on the stairs, in the bathroom. They used to make me irate. Black Socks were my nemesis. They were everywhere and anywhere. Now my heart is so grateful and thankful for the trail of black socks to my love. I'll follow them anywhere to him. (If you see me throw them at him don't judge me-They are everywhere! But I will do it with a grateful and joyful heart)
Lord, Thank you for waking me with a joyful heart. I love your daily provisions. But more than that I am thankful for your son. In JC's name I pray. Amen
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. -1 Thessalonians 5:18
God is bigger than this and Jesus Can Fix-It.
